    Second Hand Bargain Shopping in Headingley, Leeds

    This month is #SecondHandSeptember, which means we should try where possible to buy used products in vintage and charity shops. Have you made any conscious decisions to reduce your consumption of new things? I find it really hard not to buy new things but I’m happy for them to be second hand, it doesn’t bother me. Maybe not everything, but you get the jist. If I can save £5 buying a book that’s only been read once before, for one I’ll most likely also only read once, it’s a bargain. Buying second hand clothes has other benefits than being cheaper than on the high street. You’re most likely going to…

    The Perfect Fashion Fit with Simply Be

    It feels like a while since I shared outfit photos with you, but in blog post time, it was only two or so uploads ago. Since then, I’ve been investing in more new clothes to fit my “new” body. I’m in need of more trousers but I’ve ordered jumpers and bought underwear. Yep, I’ve lost two cup sizes and I’m not complaining. They’re still big but less in your face. I’ve also kindly been sent some clothes from Simply Be* to help renew my wardrobe. I’ve previously only owned underwear from them before and personally knowing them as a bigger size brand, I wasn’t sure their clothes would fit me.…

    Outfits That Fit My Style and Body Shape

    I believe I found my fashion style ages ago but it isn’t until now that I feel confident enough to wear it with pride. Prior to now I feel like I’ve been in the wrong body to wear exactly what I want. I could have adapted and bought clothes to more suit my body shape but instead, I changed my body. Perhaps that’s sad but not when the end result is me feeling 100% better and more confident. Don’t get me wrong, the style I have I see on many others in all different shapes and forms and they own it. Sadly I didn’t feel like I did, until now.…

  • IWOOT Christmas Jumper

    My Christmas Jumpers Collection

    It’s officially December and time to look forward to Christmas. I started early this year but I waited till the 1st December to wear a Christmas jumper. For someone who didn’t get the hype for them when I first moved here (9 years ago) I’ve managed to collect a fair few over the years. Now I love them and I couldn’t imagine the festive season without one. I happily wear them throughout all of December, not just on Christmas Jumper Day. It’s easy to get hold of Christmas jumpers, everyone sell them! Over the years, I’ve not bought a singe one of mine from the same place, they’re all different…

    Spending Christmas Day in Studio.co.uk Clothing

    It is December next month. December guys!! This means it’s only 37 sleeps left till Christmas and I’m all here for it. I have already started to get into the festive season. The annual Christmas market is up, I’ve bought a poinsettia which I hope will stay alive another 5 weeks and I’ve been to two Christmas themed events organised through work. I have the company Christmas party and Secret Santa events to look forward to as well and I hope to bake some Christmas treats. Not forgetting to enjoy all the mulled wine! I could go on and on about the lead up to Christmas but this post is…
